Stars Line Up

Duran Duran headline Olympics gig: this lineup could not be worse – Telegraph Blogs

Duran Duran will headline the opening Olympic concert. The UK representatives will be joined by Snow Patrol for Northern Ireland, the Stereophonics for Wales and Paolo Nutini for Scotland.
So our choice of excellence are a bunch of irrelevant rockers who got together in 1978, a four piece who could be the most boring band that ever existed, the Welsh contingent who were OK in spring 1998, and Nutini, more gap year casualty than rock star. I guess it's no surprise that the committee's first choice was Keith Moon...

Keith Moon - even though he hasn't been very active on this earth for the last 34 years he would still be a better choice. Do we get a hint that the boring farts in charge haven't got a clue?

Whereas at my local they have:

Damn! It's for CRUK who go out of there way to waste money persecuting smokers instead of doing actual research. Can't bring myself to give them any money. Que sera sera

I'm tempted to come simply because of the Strawbs—their eponymous debut album remains one of my all-time favourites...

Duran Duran is still around> Who knew?

I had a lady friend who had dressed up for Halloween like the lead singer ( decades ago, when they were, relatively, hot, new and cool) and was scarily and effeminately effective at looking like him.

Keith Moon is busy these days. He test drives for Solyndra.
